Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Both transition group metals and transition group metal complexes find application in many fields, such as catalysis, photochemistry, electrochemical, pharmacy, microbiology and biological systems. Due to this wide application area, the number of researchers studying transition group metal compounds is increasing day by day, and both the number of scientific research articles and the number of patents in this field are also increasing. In this Special Issue, titled "Advances in Transition Metals and Their Compounds", we aim to concentrate on the transition group metals—especially the coordination compounds of these metals and the applications of these compounds in different fields—and publish the studies in this field. In our issue, instead of publishing pure synthesis and characterization studies, it is requested that the synthesized or obtained compounds are examined in at least one area of their application. All experimental and theoretical studies involving transition group metals can be evaluated within the scope of this Special Issue.

We kindly invite all researchers working in the field of transition group metal chemistry to share their interesting experimental and theoretical results with the chemical community. The topics of the papers to be submitted to this Special Issue are defined, but not limited, by the keywords presented below.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
